The Shaukeens Box Office Opening

The Shaukeens has taken a decent start at the box office on Friday. Given the star cast of the film (Akshay Kumar only makes a special appearance), The Shaukeens has released on nearly 1900 – 2000 screens, which is higher than most medium-budget films released this year. It should cross the 5 crore mark if it evening / night shows hold up.

The all-India average occupancy in the morning was around 25%, which has picked up to around 30-35% in the noon. Exhibitors are confident that the film will pick up towards the end of the day, as the initial reports from theatres is good.

The other film Rang Rasiya has opened to empty houses on limited number of screens and shows. The film is a non-starter at the box office and will struggle through the weekend.

The big competition for ‘The Shaukeens’ will be from Shahrukh Khan’s ‘Happy New Year’ which enters its third weekend today. At multiplexes, ‘The Shaukeens’ has significantly higher number of shows as compared to ‘Happy New Year’, so it will be interesting to compare the weekend business of the two films. Will the family audience prefer ‘Happy New Year’ over ‘The Shaukeen’s or will it be the other way round? A lot will depend on the word-of-mouth that the Abhishek Sharma film carries.

  • Oh Yes ! Rang Rasiya has opened to empty houses .. seems like finally we have a movie which can break the ‘all time disaster’ record of our bhai’s film ‘Marigold’ which earned 40 lakhs in its entire run.

  • ofcourse it will b hny…. who will watch dat tharki buddhas shaukeens wid family…. nd hny will cross 200 cr making him d firsf superstar to have bck to bck 200 cr+ grosser

    KING KHAN- MEGASTAR OF CLASSES ND MASSES

    @ indicine plzz post d article abt brand value of d bollywood actors….

  • HNY has held up firmly in the second week. The only other movie that has managed collections in this range is Kick. The SRK starrer has now netted around 193cr. It is pretty much expected to cross the 200cr this weekend.

  • The shaukeens will have a good turnout in the evening shows..plus it will show good enough growth over the weekend to ensure the film a hit status..
    As for happy new year, it will cross 200 crores by the end of this week

  • The Shaukeens is out n out comedy movie
    or i can say comedy movie of year …it keeps ur funny bone tickling
    throughout… all the three old but young
    men are hilarious and lisa does a fair job shez sexy
    … abhisheik sharma doesn’t disappoint
    and continues his great run after tere
    bin laden …. Alcoholic and Manali trance
    are addictive …Meharbani is awesome
    But there is surprise in the movie in the
    form of none other than Akshay kumar who steals the show …
    he pukes and makes fun of himself in a
    commendable way and shows y any
    other actor can’t match him in this genre
    its vll b a surprise Hit
    ****stars from me….

  • @gotya there was a movie ye lamhe judaai ke which was collected 20lakhs so yes rang rasiya will surely beat that record.

  • Oh no kingz hny wnt collect much in tiz week becoz of a crap movie calld INTERSTELLAR for we king fans hny is the best movie ever

  • @indicine please post about Ritesh Sidhwani confirming ‘Don 3’ & another news related with Brand Value of stars wherein not so surprisingly SRK leads with a Brand Value nett. income of about 1000 cr. INR for the year 2013-14 followed by Ranbir Kapoor & Deepika Padukone.
    Thanks ! 😃

  • nobody will watch Happy New Manipulation Year ….. even jaya bachchan criticized this brainless crap movie ….. this movie shud have tagline like this IS DIWALI AA RAHE HAIN TODNE MANIPULATION K TAALE #LOLZZZZ

  • Hny will grow during sat n sunday, whenever hny get holiday it show groth othewise it drops every passing day

  • Akki is doing a cameo in the shaukeens.so dont blame akki if the film underperforms.however, akki’s acting in the film is being universally praised.

  • Shaukeen is carrying positive review 4rm critics and audience so now 200cr for HNY seems to be impossible. …😷

  • @Ak we bhai fans know the truth that ‘Yeh Lamhe Judai Ke’ relased after 10 years since it was shot due some financial problems of producer .. even when it released no one was aware about it because it hardly released in limited screen but it still earned 50 lakhs. at that time & was only ‘flop’. but we still spread false news & try to defame SRK.

  • we bhai fans are much aware that HNY is going strong but we will all spread negativity about it becoz we don’t want HNY to cross the 210 cr. mark and become ‘Blockbuster’.
    we bhai fans are trying to defame HNY by manipulation terms but we are too foolish to understand that if SRK wanted he would have stated his movie budget as only ’40-50 cr.’ and easily earned ATBB verdict but he is honest to give out all true information, but we are insecure and we will still defame SRK.

  • Oh no.Rang rasiya opened so badly and it proved us wrong coz during kick release we said that randeep hooda is a big star and kick is multistarrer movie
